You’ve heard of the Law of Attraction, right? But have you heard about the Law of Vacuum? This theory provides an interesting basis for vision board success and goal setting in general. It sounds odd at first, but looking deeper the Law makes all the sense in the world.
“The Law of The Vacuum states that all material forces of the universe abhor the vacuum and rush to fill each hole, opening, void, blank page, field of clarity or empty moment with image, garbage, sound and fury, often signifying nothing so precious as the original voidness.
This Law states that space allows movement, and that when all space is filled, the solidarity prevents further movement or growth. By reducing bit by bit the inappropriate and the unnecessary aspects of one’s lifestyle one can create the time, space, atmosphere and opportunities to move, grow, replenish and to rebuild on a more solid foundation. This Law creates the spaces in which to place only the highest and only the best with the least amount of energy and expense.”
So basically if you want to bring something new and positive into your life, you need to get rid of the old and negative in order to make room for it.
So how does the Law of Vacuum work in regular life?
Someone once shared about their desire for a new couch, as theirs was worn out and needed to be tossed and replaced. They ended up having to get rid of it and believe that this provided the perfect opportunity to open ‘space’ for their couch. This connected with their vision board desire to have a new couch, so why not get rid of the old and prepare for the new?
I decided to try out this theory for myself and see how it would affect how my goal setting and vision board techniques work.
So far, I have cleared out unnecessary clutter and projects that I have never finished (and probably never will). I have cleared out my email of newsletters and people that just fill up the space but no longer contribute any value to my work. I have also been analyzing my current relationships, seeing where things need improving and which relationships I may need to phase out. All of this has been at the forefront of my thinking this week and I am finding it quite exhilarating to be able to clear out the old and prepare to open up to something better and new!
Even if you don’t fully believe in the Law of Vacuum, it’s still useful to clear out old junk, clean up our stuff and check our relationships frequently in order to adjust things and grow into something better.
